    I Believe O Lord and Confess - Main Sermon 1/23/22

    I Believe O Lord and Confess - Main Sermon 1/23/22

    The prayers before Holy Communion (which are dated from the 13-14th Cen.) offer so much beauty and focus in preparation for a person to "approach with the fear of God, faith and with love."  Today there is a connection from the Epistle Reading (which we hear St. Paul to Timothy, which the Church uses at the beginning of the Communion Prayers) and the Gospel Passage of the man receiving his sight.  Listen to how we can have the faith and where we should place ourselves in rank to God.

    Do We Give Thanks Back to God? - Main Sermon 1/16/22

    Do We Give Thanks Back to God? - Main Sermon 1/16/22

    We hear in the Gospel Passage about 10 lepers who had faith and called out to Christ for His mercy.  While they followed His command to "show themselves to the priests" one realized he was healed and came back to give thanks.    Some questions:
    Why just one? Where did the other 9 go? Are you like the one who came back to give thanks? Are you like the other nine that we do not hear from again?

    Am I a Walking Chalice of Christ? - Main Sermon 12/5/21

    Am I a Walking Chalice of Christ? - Main Sermon 12/5/21

    This sermon focuses on a Seminar that a few parish family members attended yesterday.  One of the presenters focused on how our Churches need to have a deep Sacramental life in Christ.  When we come and participate in The Divine Liturgy, we receive Christ.  He dwells in us.  Have you ever thought of yourself as a walking Chalice?

    My Neighbor and Me - Main Sermon

    My Neighbor and Me - Main Sermon

    Today in the Gospel Passage we hear from our Lord who are neighbor is.  There have been many sermons given about each person mentioned in this parable.  Are we like the two individuals who saw with their eyes and didn't help?  Are we like the Samaritan who stopped, helped and took care of the person?  Or are we like the person who has been beaten and left for dead, waiting for someone to notice and help us? This sermon presents for points we hope it can bring us closer to God through helping others.

    The Woman who was Healed by Her Faith and Us - Main Sermon 11/7/21

    The Woman who was Healed by Her Faith and Us - Main Sermon 11/7/21

    In the Gospel Passage today we hear about 2 women who were healed by our Lord and Savior.  From the very beginning of His earthly ministry our Lord sat with, ate with, dialogued with and healed those who were sick and He did this even when He was interrupted. 

    What about us?  When sickness interrupts our life how do we handle it?  Do we have the same Faith of the woman (with the flow of blood )?
